Sporting his now-signature "Make America Great Again" hat, West made his first trip to the executive mansion to move the needle on several issues close to his heart and, before he deleted it, his social media feed - among them prison reform, gang violence and his hometown of Chicago.

Prison reform, American industry, and alternate universes were just some of the topics covered by rapper Kanye West in meeting with President Donald Trump at the White House on Thursday.

Fans have long speculated that West would run for president in 2020, but he appeared to throw cold water on that notion for now.

West not only wore one of the caps into the Oval Office but declared: "There's something about when I put on this hat, I feel like Superman". Trump said he was open to other ideas.

If you thought Kanye West would have air-tight security you couldn't be further from the truth.

West also argued that Mr Trump deserved more respect, saying, "If he don't look good, we don't look good".

"I tell you what, that was pretty impressive", Trump said after West had finished speaking.

He went on to show Mr Trump a picture of a "hydrogen-powered airplane" saved on his mobile phone, insisting: "This is what our President should be flying in".

Samsung plans to bring 4 cameras to its Galaxy A9 Star Pro
Moreover, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro will also feature a similar camera setup and so will the Galaxy S10 next year. Samsung has made the Galaxy A9 official, the world's first smartphone to feature four rear cameras .

"I think we need to care about all people", he said.

West spoke to reporters for almost 10 minutes in the Oval Office.

West also had a sartorial suggestion for Trump, proposing a hat that says just "Make America Great" - dropping the "again". Law enforcement authorities caught him giving orders to associates when they would visit him in jail.

The rapper made the trip to the White House with National Football League legend Jim Brown.

Violence in Chicago is personal to West, who was raised in the Windy City, named his youngest child "Chicago", and recently told a crowd that he is moving back, according to a video obtained by TMZ. I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does.

Trump recently tweeted praise for West, who closed a "Saturday Night Live" show wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat and delivering an unscripted pro-Trump message after the credits rolled.

Ahead of his trip to Africa, Kanye popped past the White House to meet with The Donald and launched into an nearly ten-minute long rant about policy and alternative universes.

I love everyone, right?
